For years I tried finding balance. That mythical ridge line between family and friends, work and hobbies. I searched hard. But it always eluded me. Then I looked around, and it seemed I wasn't alone – no one had found that mythical line.
I've been researching peak performance; experimenting with my daily routine, and looking for ways to stay energetic and alert throughout the day.
